May 4 – 20, 2012

In the classic tradition of “Let’s put on a show,” 13-year-old Edwina Spoonapple decides that she and her pals will do just that. Their “Advice-A-Palooza” extravaganza features such hilarious and endearing songs as ‘Put It in the Piggy,’ ‘Frankenguest’ and ‘Hola Lola,’ offering clever advice on kid-troubling issues that run the gamut from what to do when offered icky food to how to deal with a truly annoying brother. Written in the style of Schoolhouse Rock Live! and You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Dear Edwina Junior is the perfect musical for young people and the adults they bring.
